2013 Mattel 1-64 #X1628-09A0A Hot Wheels 'Batman Live' Batmobile

'Batman Live' is the latest incarnation of the Batman saga. It is a live action play currently touring the country (AND the world) and is a melding of typical Super Hero fare with Cirque du Soleil type acrobatics. One of the biggest stars of the show isn't a human at all but the latest in Batmobile designs. This sleek little affair has four aerodynamic wheel nacelles and a bullet-like fuselage with rear spoiler. The stage prop shows a pronounced rocket launching array at the front which is only hinted at in this diminutive toy. The toy is done in a nice matte finish and is another terrific offering in the Hot Wheels Batman range. Click 'Batman Live' for more info and a downloadable .PDF brochure/comic. Enjoy!

OOPS! I forgot to take photos of the packaging prior to removing the toy - sorry!
